Re: [PATCH][CFT] (updated) ext2 directories in pagecache

Here is my ext2 directory index as a patch against your patch:

    - COMBSORT macro replaced by custom sort code
    - Most #ifdef CONFIG_EXT2_INDEX's changed to if (<constant>)

To do:

  - Split up the split code
  - Finalize hash function
  - Test/debug big endian
  - Fall back to linear search if bad index detected
  - Fail gracefully on random data
  - Remove the tracing and test options

To apply:

    cd source/tree
    zcat ext2-dir-patch-S4.gz | patch -p1
    cat dx.pcache-2.4.4 | patch -p0

To create an indexed directory:

    mount /dev/hdxxx /test -o index
    mkdir /test/foo
